A Massachusetts lobsterman amazed onlookers when he discovered a rare blue lobster in a trap Monday morning.
According to the Boston Globe, the chances of finding a blue lobster is about 1 in 2 MILLION, though experts say the estimate may be outdated.
Wayne Nickerson, who's been hauling in lobsters for 35 years, said he also found a blue lobster in 1990.

A spokesman for the New England Aquarium said sightings of the unique crustacean aren't as rare as they used to be because of social media.
The lobster, which they named Bleu, was removed from the others for safe-keeping.
